    Brilliant day! Thanks Eddie for organising. Ashamedly it’s been nearly 2 years since I came on the forum and Flaming June with a beautiful flower profile pic was not at all what I expected

    David & Sian, thank you for the challenge and you were our inspiration. Thank you to all those who took part, you made it all worth while. Our journey home was via the Gateway to buy Marie 5 litres of non toxic ice cream only to find ourselves marooned on the A419 for 4 hours due to an altercation between a Range Rover and a lorry. However I discovered that the lorry behind us had a refrigerator in his cab large enough to stall the thaw of 5 litres of reasonably priced coconut vegan ice cream. All's well that ends well? Adrian

    Thanks to all who gathered with us at Broadway Towers yesterday and for such a convivial evening gathering. Andy’s choice of restaurant was great, Marks choice of hotel excellent and LCD company always a pleasure. Thanks also to all on the committee whose tireless efforts on our behalf has made this such a great club to be proud to be a member of. What a great way to start another season of Lotus driving adventures.

    Hi folks, This ones for all you early Elan owners.....fed up with whacking the hell out of your spinners with a lead mallet, occasionally missing and clobbering the wheel! Well no more, help is at hand in the form of this great piece of kit.... Called a Wheel Widget it easily latches on to the spinner. Photo shows the tool attached to my torque wrench via a 38mm socket.. Interested?....email Lionel Roberts at wheelwidget@hotmail. Co uk Andy.

    Nowhere in the village is far from the seafront and ‘Woodlands’ is just up the hill past the St Brides hotel. They do have car parking at the hotel I think but as usual we will be booking the secure end of the harbour. I only sing while waiting too long for my food or when I’ve consumed far too much falling over water. Looking forward to seeing everyone once again this year.

    I'm a bit unsure about what's happening but aim to be there but is it only one of the five cars in the gardens that will be judged or are all cars that show up entitled to join in? It's my first time at this event so bear with me... looking forward to it anyway.

    Sunday 6 October 2019 – 9:00am – 4:00pm We’re back at Bicester Heritage on Sunday 6 October for the Sunday Scramble with discounted entry and display parking for Club members. Buy Club Member Vehicle Tickets – LDC Discount Code LDC1019C Club ticket sales close no later than midnight on Tuesday 1 October and will not be available on the gate. Click on the ‘Enter Promo Code’ link towards the top of the ‘Tickets’ block on the booking page and input your club discount code LDC1019C. The club ticket option will then become visible in the list of ticket options for you to select. Please note, if the Classic Vehicle ticket is purchased instead of the Club Vehicle ticket, there will not be a space allocated in the club parking display area. With over 40 specialist businesses situated in a jaw-dropping location, this is an open day event unlike any other. See inside the workshops and showrooms at the freshly restored historic buildings of the former RAF Bicester, explore the unique site and take in its evocative autumnal atmosphere. Taking place on a Sunday morning, this event encourages historic motoring enthusiasts to get involved and bring their pre-1990 vehicle to join the eclectic display. From commercials to motorcycles, pre-War, veterans and modern classics, the mix is astonishing and ever changing. Nestled in-between the 1920s RAF buildings and tree-lined avenues, this location has a filmset quality and a buzz that is truly unique. Family friendly and laid back, the Scramble is a wonderful way to while away the hours on a Sunday morning in the company of some spectacular machines at the best-preserved WW2 RAF Bomber Station in the country.

    You're right, it does. The grammar copper in my head made me say it! How 'bout refining 'a Skittle of Lotus' to 'a Skittles of Lotus'? - even if for Andy a Pride of Lotus works better......

    Thank you so much David and Sian for organising a 4th successive event in Saundersfoot and it felt as popular as the first year we all visited. It was great to see so many new faces, and returning ones, and to enjoy the weekend (half of it for us) with you all. I for one can't wait for next year...

    Hi folks with only two months to go for this event I’ve finally thought it time to catch up and communicate with all and sundry. I will start by apologising that things might seem a bit haphazard but there are reasons for this beyond my control, honest. Due, quite correctly, to the constrains of regulations regarding Data Protection it is very difficult to keep a handle on who has booked what and where! A number of you have contacted me directly and told me your intentions but I’m not able to put lists on here. So must as you might find this a pain could I ask everyone intending to join us could you please email myself at d.boneham@lotusdriversclub.org.uk and copy in Jennie at j.wilson@lotusdriversclub.org.uk with the following information: Whether your booked in the Penhelig, Dovey Inn or else where and the number of nights you are staying. whether you have booked the zipwire or caverns or are just planning a scenic drive out. whether you wish to join everyone else on Friday and Saturday night for evening meals at the Penhelig. whether you are willing for your email address to be included in a group email distribution for this event. I will shortly post up on here the suggested routes to and from Aberdovey to Blaenau Ffestiniog there being a choice of three all of which offer great Lotus driving roads. Pob Hwyl Dave & Sian
